Teacher and their advices, thoughts and wishes

You may possess the power and force of a world ruler, but unless you gain mastery over your mind, when the time of death arrives, you still haven’t attained the power of freedom.

As we have already seen, reversing the attitude of not wanting to suffer is the whole basis for transforming suffering into our spiritual path. This is because we simply won’t be able to turn suffering into the path as long as anxiety and irritation continue to eat away at our confidence and disturb our mind.

The more we arrive at actually transforming suffering into the path, the more we will enhance and reinforce all our previous practice. This is because our courage and good humour will grow all the more, once we can see from our own experience how suffering causes our spiritual practice and qualities to blossom.

It is said that by training gradually with smaller sufferings, ‘step by step, in easy stages’, then in the end we’ll be able to handle big suffering and difficulties too. We must go about it like this, because it is extremely difficult to have an experience of something which is beyond our level or capacity.

~ Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpe Nyima

“FIVE WAYS OF RESTING”

Rest in a natural way like a small child.
Rest like an ocean without waves.
Rest within clarity like a candle flame.
Rest without self-co...ncerns like a human corpse.
Rest unmoving like a mountain.

– Milarepa

Great quotes, dear Eva!

Don’t burden others with your expectations. Understanding their limitations can inspire compassion instead of disappointment, ensuring beneficial and workable relationships. Remember that you have only a short time together. Be grateful for each day you share.

We can never understand the nature of the mind through intense effort but only by relaxing, just as breaking a wild horse requires that one approach it gently and treat it kindly rather than running after it and trying to use force. So do not try to catch hold the nature of the nature of the mind, just leave it like it is.

The 21st-Century mindset is different than 20th, as the 20th-Century was different than the 19th. 21st-C thinking is far more holistic, integrative and whole person, but our politics is stuck in a 20th-Century model of primarily externally oriented thinking and problem-solving. This is why we need a more holistic thinker in the White House. If we only treat the symptoms of a problem but not its cause, symptoms will always reappear. President Franklin Roosevelt wrote, “We must do more than end war. We must end of the beginnings of all war.” War is the absence of peace: peace is not the absence of war.That is why I want a Dept. of Peace: to boost the societal immune system through peace building, decreasing the statistical probability of conflict. We don’t just need war games: we need peace games. Right now our military budget is $750 billion a year, while the peace building agencies within the State Department get less than $1 billion. Yet peace-building factors such as expanding economic opportunities for women and educational opportunities for children, and reducing unnecessary human suffering wherever possible, are statistically proven to increase peace and reduce conflict. Our national security agenda should represent a far more holistic understanding of how to create peace in the world within the next 50 to 100 years, and that will begin with an American president who sets that as our national goal. When I am president, the peacebuilders among us - people who represent very sophisticated skill sets, by the way, and often display them with extraordinary courage in places around the world - will be supported in the ways they deserve to be supported. Theirs will be work no longer peripheral to our national security agenda; they will have a full seat at the table. We should see large groups of desperate people as a national security risk, and when I am president that risk will be diminished. It is time to turn away from the perilous course of endless preparation for war as the sole essence of our security agenda, and harness our national attention and imagination in the direction of waging peace in the 21st Century.

As long as there is an ego, there are demons.
When there is no more ego, there are no more demons either.

Once you overcome the hatred within your mind, you will discover that in the world outside, there is no longer any such thing as even a single enemy.
